Coachella Valley Art Center to Host VETERANS CREATE WORKSHOPS

INDIO — VETERANS CREATE Workshops are no-cost opportunities offered to military veterans living in the Coachella Valley.

These workshops have been designed to be opportunities for Veterans to make use of their unique individual creative talents.  VETERANS CREATE is not meant to be art therapy, even though creating can be personally therapeutic.  VETERANS CREATE offers opportunities to create in four creative disciplines- Painting, Printmaking (Monoprints), Fused Glass and Glass Blowing.

The Coachella Valley Art Center is based on the premise that using your creativity can benefit your life.

Participants will be encouraged to create work using individual imagination and personal experience as inspiration.
